When should I submit my application for retirement?

The retirement system encourages you to submit your application as least 60 days prior to your effective date and will allow you to sign the application up to 120 days prior to your retirement date. In order to make sure that you receive your first retirement check on time, you should submit your paperwork to the retirement system 90 to 120 days prior to your retirement date (the closer to 120 days that you submit your paperwork, the better your odds of getting your first check on time).
